Thanks for the post!
Two ways you could do this easily...
1. If the records are related by the actor name field, use the command "Go to Related Record".
2. If they are not related, but you just want to match the name anyway:
Tie the button to a script that does the following:
a. go to field "actor name" [select entire contents]
c. go to layout [2nd layout]
d. enter find mode
e. go to field [the one where you want to find the actor name]
f. paste [select entire field contents]
g. perform find
either way should do it...one slick, the other brute force...see which one fits better to your application.
